Once upon a time there was a stupid Princess who suggested her Prince host a boys night at the castle. The Prince took her up on the offer and started to plan the boys night to end all boys nights that involved tequila shots and huge hunks of barbecued meat (and questionable music too) The Princess started looking for somewhere to spend the night because she didn't want to end up like Cinderella, cooking and playing bar maid and cleaning up the inevitable mess made by 15 middle aged men acting like 18 year old boys.
So the princess decided to escape to a kingdom far far away where nobody knew she was a Princess, but where she could still feel the royal vibe and so she hopped on a magic flying dragon and headed for Queensland. Because they have actual sun up there and she hadn't seen the sun for about 5 months. Oh and because Little Miss Sunshine lives there too.
And at the other end she found the magical kingdom of Max Brenner which is a lot like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory for grown ups.
If the Princess lived in Queensland permanently she would be the size of a castle.
There were lovely vistas in this new and strange kingdom where nobody appears to wear long sleeves and the sun shines almost constantly.
The Princess went on a ferry for the very first time and thinks this would be a very cool way to travel to work every day.
There was lots of eating. Breakfast really is the most
important delicious meal of the day.
A little bit of cocktail sipping ...
The Princess raided Little Miss Sunshine's scrap stash. Has anyone else ever noticed other people's scrap stashes are so much more interesting than our own? In the end every time the Princess picked up another piece of fabric Little Miss Sunshine was giving her the chippy slap.
The Princess wonders why she toted three different projects two thousand kilometres when she only managed this tiny effort for the whole time she was there.
The Princess tried to crochet once and it was an utter disaster. That doesn't stop The Princess from pinning all things crochet-y on her Pinterest account and Little Miss
Stalker Sunshine had seen this pinned and decided to crochet it up as a surprise. The Princess was thrilled because it's just so pretty, and everyone knows the best gifts are the ones made for you by friends.
There was some retail therapy. Ok quite a bit of retail therapy. Some of the retail therapy is already in the wash ...the urge to shop in another state is magical -you just can't resist.
And Little Miss Sunshine made the Princess eat salad three times in four days ...so now the Princess can cross healthy eating off her list for the remainder of 2013.
All too soon it was time to come home to the royal kingdom where The Queen had popped over and tidied up the castle before the Princess arrived home. The Princess suspects the Prince may still have been a wee bit hung over though.
